About the garden

One of the loveliest gardens in Cornwall – Trewithen Gardens nails the balance between hidden nooks and sweeping countryside views. Trewithen means ‘house of trees’ so it should come as no surprise that Trewithen Gardens is full of wonderfully woody specimens, from the big blousy Magnolias to graceful Acers. In fact, Trewithen Gardens is home to around 20 champion trees, so-called for reaching the greatest height or girth of their species.

As well as these awe-inspiring trees, Trewithen Gardens is full of fabulous flora and fauna, including a spectacular collection of Camellias, which have earned it the accolade of International Camellia society “Garden of Excellence”. Among the 30 acres of woodland gardens is the Cockpit, where climbing Hydrangeas and exotic Tree Ferns jostle for space under the dappled light of the canopy. Visit in spring when the early flowering Magnolias, Rhododendrons and Camellias are in full swing.

After exploring the garden, visitors can enjoy delicious refreshments at the Tea Shed, open until the end of October half term.

A hidden gem and well worth a trip. We spent a Sunday afternoon wandering around the varied grounds. The silent garden was wonderful and it is heartening to see their work with red squirrels. The shed cafe does a fantastic cream tea, too!

This review is about the Tea Shed at Trewithen. Visited pre pandemic and really enjoyed what we had, sadly the same can't be said about our recent visit. Very limited menu, fairly expensive, poor coffee, very slow service (we were the only people there). Equally sadly the wait wasn't worthwhile. The food was at best average and my partner's scone was undercooked. We won't be returning

My husband and I had a very pleasant afternoon tea here recently. I just wish the cafe served sandwiches.
